Tires & wheels

Is it possible to run all four 8.5 wheels on the SLK32? I need four wheels, as all are bent. Were bent when car was purchased.

Anyone have an idea where to buy good wheels?

Thanks
Gary

I recommend you get the original wheels ... They have the correct sizes and offsets for the car. Auto Rim Shop sells reconditioned OEM wheels at very reasonable prices. The ones for your SLK 32 are currently $270 apiece:

I bought a set of the optional AMG 17" wheels for the 2006 SLK280 (from the Sport kit) from them. They were delivered promptly, are perfectly straight and look brand new, and look/work fantastic on the car.
